Toluka Lake House listed by Melissa Ordway – Variety2 min read
Although she bought it for her father just over six months ago for over 1. 1.2 million, Melissa Ordo – who has appeared in more than 60,000 episodes of the long-running soap story “The Young and the Wristless” – has turned a Spanish-style mini-compound into L.A. Starry Touloua Lake. And an out-of-pocket border neighborhood within the Studio City community cost 1.4 million. Cree said. The property is jointly listed on the compass by Knut Smith on the compass, as well as Ordway musician real estate agent husband Justin Gaston.
Extensively renovated and updated prior to the purchase of the Ordo-Gastons, the original home is a charmingly detached, 1920s white-stucco bungalow that offers three bedrooms and two up-to-date bathrooms. A detached garage is converted into a pint-sized guesthouse or legal rent (ADU) with separate gas and electric meters, and third, the shed-like structure at the back of the guesthouse is suitable as an art studio, yoga retreat or home office.
The grassy front yard is washed with modern fencing and the steep iron and glass front door is set in a shallow overhang on a wide, open front porch, opening directly into the living room. A huge white stucco fireplace anchors at one end of a 20-foot-long room with a greedy ceiling and wooden floor scattered throughout the house. Equipped with high-end designer applications and white marble-effect countertops in a trendy mix of black and white cabinets, the kitchen is arranged around a huge, dual island. The family house and dining area in a combination on the other side of the kitchen spreads easily into the backyard with French doors.
The bedrooms are clustered together and include a privately located master suite with a dazzling corner fireplace, walk-in closet and a snugly tiled bathroom. French doors provide easy access to the backyard where the studio-style guesthouse has a small but complete kitchen and a bathroom. Concrete terraces, under the shade of giant citrus trees, provide a flat, grassy expanse and a large hedgehog that gives a curtain to the surrounding apartment building.
